7 Tips for Healthy Cholesterol

  1. Don't worry about eggs. Studies show that eating even six eggs every day has no effect on blood cholesterol levels. Yet the myth persists that eggs are bad for your heart. Don't believe it.
  1. Eat oatmeal for breakfast. An oat-based cereal — whether it's cooked oatmeal or a dry cereal such as Life, Cheerios, or Quaker Oatmeal Squares — is a tasty way to help keep cholesterol within a healthy range.
  1. (Men) If testosterone is low or low-normal, consider using bioidentical testosterone. A low testosterone level in men will routinely cause elevated cholesterol levels, as well as elevated blood pressure and blood sugars. In my male patients, I prescribe testosterone if the patient has a total testosterone level that is under 450 nanograms per deciliter. I use a bioidentical testosterone gel, preferably from an ITC compounding pharmacy. This costs a tiny fraction of what the standard testosterone creams cost, and I find them more effective. I aim for a testosterone level of over 700.
  1. If thyroid levels are low (even low normal), or you have fatigue, weight gain or cold intolerance, consider a trial of prescription natural thyroid hormone. A suboptimal cholesterol level in both men and women is often caused by low thyroid levels. If you want to help move your cholesterol levels to within a healthy range, a trial of thyroid hormone may be worthwhile — even if your lab tests for thyroid levels are normal.
  1. Season with garlic. Eating one to three cloves of garlic a day may be a good way to keep your cholesterol in check. Try crushing a clove into olive oil.
  1. Snack on a handful of "tree nuts" daily. Walnuts can help you maintain good cholesterol levels. So can almonds and macadamia.
  1. To help support good triglyceride levels, take acetyl L-carnitine: 1,000 milligrams daily. This supplement helps burn blood fats. Take it for three months. (Optimal levels of triglycerides are lower than 150 mg/dl.) In addition, take fish oil for essential fatty acid support. Also cut back on excess sugar.
